My inspiration for this layout
My daughter’s smile is my inspiration for this LO. She didn’t know that my brother takes her pictures, so her smile is pure, spontaneous, very sweet and cute, but fun too!

Special tricks/techniques
I want my page have girlie style, sweet and fun effect, so
– I framed my daughter’s face with a round flowery mat for a sweet effect.
– I choose purple/pink colors beacuse it’s represent girl style.
– I give a lot sequin spill for fun and dynamic effect
– A simple title work so the photos is still on the focus
